Diabetes is Everywhere - Even at the North Pole

What a week!  We are trying Apidra...  and it's been rough.  More on that ASAP - I promise!  I really think it's going to be a good thing once we get things figured out!

I want to post... but I'm stressed.  And tired.  And overwhelmed.  And just sick of diabetes....

So I thought I'd share a little story that happened to us the other day.

Our Elf on a Shelf, Mr. Funky (yes, she named him herself), arrived just after Thanksgiving.  He's been showing up in random places ever since - watching closely and reporting back to Santa each night.

(Sweetpea at age 3 - 8 months post dx  I look at these pics and I can't get over how little she was...  She was just a baby...)

I wrote about dear little Mr. Funky HERE.

The other morning, Sweets woke up and excitedly called, "Mommy, Mommy!  I see him!"

She actually looks forward to mornings because she can go searching for her dear little elf! 

Anyway, I went into her room to see if he was, indeed, there.  If he was - it was news to me!  I'm usually REALLY good at finding him!  (wink, wink!)

"It's not him, Mom.  I thought it was.  I can see a little bit of red sticking up over there on my dresser.  But it's not him.  It's just the glucagon."

Ahhh, yes.  So it was.

Just another way that diabetes makes itself known in our daily lives...



  1. Our daughter was on Apidra with her pump and our doctor learned that it was not made for pumps just yet so we had to go back to novolog. She was all over the place with Apidra and the pump.

  2. Yay for Apidra! We have been pumping it for a year. And its amazing. Can't wait to hear what you think!

    Yes. Stupid diabetes.

  3. Your family is soooo cute! Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas!
